I’m about to walk a group through 8 versions of a mockup. I want to show them in a particular order. I’ve had to preface each alternative 2, 3, 4… so that I know what order to show them in, but it looks hacky. Alternatively if I can’t re-order it would be ideal if they were auto-sorted alphabetically, though this wouldn’t be perfect because I can’t rename the “Official Version”, which isn’t ideal.
Hi @jpgilman, we can definitely sort them alphabetically (leaving the Official one up top of course), I’m not sure why we don’t yet!
This is my +1 for this request. I would like to go a bit further and be able to “drag/drop” alternates in place so it is easier to step through. Sorting by name is definitely a must, “drag/drop” as icing on the cake.
Additionally, I would like to be able to resize the alternate area a bit. Somewhat small on my screen and with so much real estate to go around I would love to be able to resize the alternate window.
Indeed! How my alternates list look like at the moment:
- Alternate 3
- Alternate 5
- Alternate 2
- Alternate 1
- Alternate 4
Most confusing progression ever! Unfortunately there is no way to reorder the list either.
Please include this feature - it’s difficult to follow my line of thinking as I design.
We shipped today 3.1.3. We now sort the alternates alphabetically.
You can get it here:
Here are the complete release notes:
Can I still vote for “user can reorder Alternate Versions”?
Now I have:
- Official Version
- 1st Version
- Official Version Alternative
I’d like to place the legacy version(s) at the bottom, and the new alternatives to the Official Version at the top, without using zzz_1st Version…
Sure thing, @Ilse! Knowing that it is a pain point for you helps a lot. I’ve just added your feature request.
The HTML5 version of Balsamiq for Google Drive no longer sorts the Alternate Versions alphabetically, which means at the moment I have no way to control the display order of the Alternate Versions, which is very frustrating.
I don’t need drag/drop ability here, if it just sorted them alphabetically I can use name prefixes to get them to display in the order I need.
Please consider this my +1 for the ability to reorder the alternate list, preferably both via drag & drop and a “move up”, “move down” option in the context menu.
